This spicy cabbage and potatoes from Bolivia is a welcome change from the everyday cabbage vegetable made at home.

This recipe actually uses Aji chillies you can use jalapenos or in my case our regular chillies which happen to be spicy.

Spicy Cabbage and Potatoes

Made simply with cabbage, potatoes, onion tomato paste, tomatoes, yellow capsicum, chillies as the main ingredients it is a treat to see and eat.

Latin American food differs from country to country and region to region. The spices used are also different and shared spices are also used in different quantities.

Bolivian cuisine is a mixture of Spanish cuisine added to the local Aymara traditional food. For a good measure, they have adapted Argentinean, French, German, Italian and Arab cuisine to suit their tastes. The local staples are corn, potatoes, quinoa and beans. The use of rice, wheat, meat like chicken and pork is common too.

The other cabbage recipes I have made in the past are Cabbage Salad, Rice Holubtsi-Ukrainian Cabbage Rolls, Cabbage Fitters.

This spicy cabbage and potatoes from Bolivia is a part of Explore Latin American Cuisine and is adapted from here.

You can serve spicy cabbage and potatoes with chapatti and rice but my girls ate it like a salad plain.
